Fire hydrant flow testing

About this project

To support our fire hydrant replacement program we are undertaking routine water flow and pressure testing of about 250 fire hydrants in various Logan suburbs.

Fire hydrants are used by the Queensland Fire and Emergency services. We test fire hydrants to gauge flow and pressure to make sure they are fully functioning in case of an emergency. While we already maintain fire hydrants, further testing helps us determine the performance and condition of hydrants so we can identify hydrants that need to be replaced.

We will be testing fire hydrants on week days between 7:00am and 5:00pm from 20 June 2022 for approximately two weeks.

There will be no interruption to residents’ water supply during the flow testing of fire hydrants.

Some water will be released into the stormwater network as hydrants are tested, we will try to minimise water usage where possible.

Current locations for hydrant flow testing

  • Rochedale South
  • Underwood

Australia’s first biosolids gasification facility

Logan Water has pioneered an Australian first biosolids gasification facility. The facility transforms sewage sludge (biosolids) into renewable energy and a sustainable product called biochar. Biochar can be used by the agricultural, composting, building and other industries.

The Loganholme Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) operated a trial biosolids gasification facility during 2020. A permanent facility is under construction and will be completed in early to mid-2022.

Research into the performance of the trial facility showed that Logan Water’s solution:

  • is heat-energy neutral
  • reduces the amount of biosolids for disposal by around 90%
  • eliminates about 95% of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) like polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), and
  • reduces about 63% of micro and nano-plastics in biosolids.

The process does not harm the environment and the resulting biochar contains bio-available nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Biochar also increases the water holding capacity of soil. This helps plants to germinate and grow in the hot Australian climate. 

Logan Water is progressing with the second stage of tenders from potential buyers of commercial quantaties of biochar. The outcome of the tender process is expected in early to mid-2022.

If you have a general question about this project, please email watercomms@logan.qld.gov.au.

Acknowledgement: The AU$17.28m biosolids gasification trial facility was funded by Council and an AU$6.2m grant from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).

Cedar Grove Environmental Centre

This award-winning centre is open daily from 5.30am to 6:30pm. Please note that the gates to the centre and carpark close at 6.30pm, please make sure you leave the Centre before this time.

Community members can visit the site to enjoy:

  • a 2.5km walking track (loop) along the Logan River
  • shaded seating and picnic tables
  • parking, accessible toilets and drinking fountain
  • viewing the Cedar Grove Landcare nursery and training facility.

Access is from Cedar Grove Road, and there is a public carpark at the end of the access road. Dogs on a leash are allowed but there is no access for motorbikes, horses, fishing or camping.

Apart from community facilities, the centre is home to Queensland’s first wastewater treatment plant to benefit the environment by producing record low nutrient levels in effluent and offsetting remaining nutrients through catchment restoration (visits to the treatment plant by arrangement only). The site master plan was developed with a Community Reference Group. Minutes of the meetings of this group are available from Logan Water on request.  

For general enquiries, please call us on 07 3412 3412.

Chambers Flat wastewater treatment plant

A new wastewater treatment facility is needed to service development in the Park Ridge, Logan Village and Yarrabilba areas in the coming years.

The planned facility currently known as the Chambers Flat wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) will ultimately be constructed on part of a 144 hectare site at Pleasant View Road, Chambers Flat.

Current status

Following community consultation and technical investigations, Council acquired land at Pleasant View Road, Chambers Flat in September 2020 for the purposes of building a modern WWTP. This was approved by the Minister of the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy.

There is no construction timeframe for the WWTP or connecting pipelines. Logan Water is currently reviewing population growth in the service area to determine when the facility may be needed.

Community Reference Group

In late 2021, Logan Water invited members of the Chambers Flat community to participate in a Community Reference Group for the proposed Chambers Flat WWTP site.

The purpose of the Community Reference Group is to:

  • enhance communication between Council and community members affected by the project
  • increase our understanding of community feedback about wastewater management and the development of the Chambers Flat WWTP and connecting trunk infrastructure
  • maximise opportunities for the community and environment as part of the project. For example, the Community Reference Group may be involved in preparing a master plan for the site to accommodate the WWTP as well as community, environmental and / or other uses.

You can download the Chambers Flat WWTP Community Reference Group Terms of Reference (PDF 637 KB).

Members of the Community Reference Group have been selected and all nominees have been advised of the outcome of the selection process.

The selected members of the Community Reference Group is the following Chambers Flat residents:

  • Brad O’Keefe
  • Brendan Doman
  • David Loch
  • Geoff Burr
  • Kelly Wood
  • Kym Suthers 
  • Sue Simpson
  • Matthew Patterson
  • Ted Austin

Loganholme Wastewater Treatment Plant upgrade

More than $100 million in major upgrade works are underway or recently completed at Loganholme Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP).

The upgrade will increase the plant’s capacity to process wastewater from our growing community, improve its environmental performance, and reduce operating costs for Council and customers.

On site, Logan Water is constructing Australia’s first permanent biosolids gasification facility. The facility will transform biosolids (sludge from wastewater) into renewable energy and a safe, environmentally friendly product called biochar.

A 1000kw solar array is now operating to help power treatment operations and reduce Council’s carbon footprint. The array includes around 3,000 solar panels.

The plant’s main treatment process is receiving a major overhaul. This includes construction of a modern membrane bioreactor treatment facility covering 3.500 square metres. The technology will increase the plant’s treatment capacity from 45 million litres per day to 67 million litres per day and will service an additional 100,000 people. It will complement the existing conventional treatment process at the WWTP and enable the transfer of flows from the Beenleigh WWTP (which will ultimately be de-commissioned).

The existing pump station at the WWTP has been upgraded with new pumps, valves and pipework to manage incoming wastewater flows more efficiently and enhance safety for operators.
